Isaiah Mloyiswa Mdliwamafa Shembe (c. 1865 – 2 May 1935), was the founder of the Ibandla lamaNazaretha, South Africa, which was the largest African-initiated church in Africa during his lifetime.A self-styled prophet who claimed to have been sent directly by God, Shembe started his religious career as an itinerant evangelist and faith healer in 1910. Within ten years, he had built up a large following in Natal with dozens of congregations across the province. The Shembe Church eventually had well over one million members before it began to splinter into competing groups in the 1980s.
